I was almost tempted to post a photo of Tajmahal but then I realized you rarely see pictures of Tajmahal from inside. Here is a picture of Taj from inside. Taj is always crowded so I had to take this shot as soon as I had a chance to have the entire room by myself. Sorry didn't get a chance to do proper framing. Check out the intricate details and color.
Late afternoon sun provided just enough light to make colors reveal themselves and it seems the colors have their own mind. Reflection from the floor make the color on the ceiling so fluid.
once again your comments are welcome.

I like this different perspective of TajMahal but the colors were not what you usuall present to us. I made a little WS, hope you like it.

It seems to be quite a bit damaged inside...what area is this? I would assume that the main central tomb would be better preserved than this.

Hi Pranab, Wow! what a beautiful and rare photo! Congratulations sir. Any picture of Taj comes out good, but the catch is taking a picture without any people in the frame! Crowd is ironical for a tomb where it is supposed to be peaceful! Good job - i could not resist playing with the image using my std techniques. Pls see the WORKSHOP. Thank you. Sunil.

Wow! Inside the Tajmahal - I always wondered how it looks in the inside. But never seen any photographs of that. The photo is slightly tilted to the right and the colors are a bit subdues. Nevertheless, I like it. Thanks for sharing.
I didn't like the workshops. So, I tried one myself. Hope you'll like it.

its a masterpiece presentation. Age of the building is clearly visible and you are right about getting this without any one. I wagely remember visiting Taj because it was when I 13 or 14 years old. When we walk in they provide a sock or some kind of clothing to wrap your foot. I remember taking a staircase going down some where to see the tomb. I guess this picture is missing some depth. Again, it is a rare and remarkable capture.

Merhaba Prtanab, my friend...
It's a beautiful ambience... Also beautiful light and colors... The decoration on the wall,
the reflection on the floor and the details are perfect...
